Asian Development Bank and Thailand: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2009
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Thailand as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. The global financial crisis, coupled with the need to restore political stability and unity within the country, presents the Kingdom of Thailand (Thailand) with significant development challenges in the coming years. As a middle-income country with a gross national income per capita of $3,917 in 2008, the predicament facing Thailand is that a deep and prolonged global recession could push millions of Thais back into poverty. Furthermore, if economic growth is not sustained, Thailand’s progress in attaining the Millennium Development Goals could be reversed.
